I injured my neck a long time ago and I have had problems every since. What can I do to make my muscles relax/ ease the pain?
OK more than likely, when you injured yourself, you caused a misalignment in your neck. This will cause additional stress and strain on the muscles in your neck that will end up causing pain.
I would recommend that you see a chiropractor. they specialize at being able to diagnose what is going on and more than likely they can correct the situation.
I hope this information helps. I wish you the best.

My dad is currently on blood pressure medicine and cholesterol medicine. He recently pulled something in his back and can verily walk. Would it affect him if he was to take a muscle relaxer to relieve the pain. He wont go to the doctor for he dont want to miss work. Thanks for any suggestions and comment.
Call your pharmacist and ask them the question, tell them what he is taking for the bp and cholesterol and ask if it would be ok to take the muscle relaxer, give them the name of it and if there would be any interactions.
In the mean time your dad can try either heat from a heating pad and if that doens’t help he could try an ice pack, 10 minutes on 10 minutes off, he should try the ice first to try to alleviate the swelling, heat would be to relax the muscles. But its one or the other, not both ok, depending on which one makes him feel better.
he will have to be rather stationary for awhile to give this time to heal up.

I’m looking for some good things that will help relieve pain ?
Ibuprofen. But also try a spray like Deep Heat which can provide immediate relief.

For about 2 months now I’ve been in awful pain with my muscles, I haven’t done anything to bring it on though (no hard exercise etc)
I’m 14 by the way.
I have spoken to the doctor about it and what I emant about not doing hard exercise is that I haven’t done anything like a marathon, but I do walk and cycle regularly- well I did until I got this pain.
Stretching exercises before you exercise or bike will help keep your muscles flaccid (loose). Muscle spasms can also be relieved by rest and heating pads. Your Dr will be very reluctant to order any meds for you because of your age. Unless you have something more serious, which it doesn’t sound like you do.By the way, It does not sound like fibromyalgia. You have no symptoms of it.

I’ve been stretching for my splits the first day was okay but then the second I had pains in my leg muscle the part under my leg and a little bit in my thigh and I need help to relieve this pain so I can reach my goal of splits anyone have any suggestions. I might be taking ballet classes and I want to be prepared.
Happens all the time if your muscles aren’t used to it. Try and do some light stretches to warm and loosen the muscles up. Tomorrow will be worse on your legs if you don’t.

i have this pain in my right arm that would not go away. i tried streching, but it only brought the pain back and mad it worse for a few seconds. how do i get rid of this pain for good?
its a bothersome pain.
I am a pitcher so i get arm pains alot. Ice your arm for for about 2 hours 10 minutes on 10 minutes off it always works for me. If it continues see a doctor.

I did a few super sets 3 days ago and I can still hardly move. My inner thighs are killing me. I thought I stretched well following, but evidently not.
Stretching will not prevent pain or muscle damage. You will have to learn for yourself how fast you can make progress and not push yourself beyond that point. ∠°)

I’ve been attending an early morning workout session and found my arms and legs to be extremely sore for a few days in a row… Is there any easy thing to do to make the soreness go away?
Apply an ice pack for 20 minutes to any area that hurts. Repeat this every hour until the pain subsides.
Stretch the sore area gently to rid your body of lactic acid, which contributes to the pain.
Walk 15 to 30 minutes at least once a day to increase circulation throughout your body. This will also help deliver much-needed oxygen to the sore muscles.
Drink a minimum of eight glasses (64 oz.) of water daily – more if you’re active – to hydrate your body.
Avoid strenuous activity as long as you’re in pain.
I Hope That I Helped!
PS, feel free to go to eHow.com and type in some of your symptoms, they had a few answers.

I been having trouble with my arm since I was like 8 it getting in the coracobrachialis muscle now what can I do?
i would strongly suggest you use MediTowles. they’re these little discrete towelettes that relieve muscle and joint pain. all you have to do is rub it on where the pain is and almost instantly its gone!
i like using them better than the icy hot patches because the menthal smell is so strong and you have to leave them on.
when it comes to instant pain relief i always use them [:
